Who are the happiest NFL teams

The hot phase of free agency in the NFL is over. (SERVICE: The NFL's most important transfer news)

Therefore, it is easy to see which direction the 32 teams have taken and who could fight for the Super Bowl in the coming season. (NEWS: Revolution decided in the NFL)

Which franchise can challenge or even defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers around NFL-GOAT Tom Brady? The SPORT1-Power ranking.

32. Houston Texans

Since he was hired in January, Texans GM Nick Caserio has tried 30 moves to strengthen the team. The decisions may be more prudent than those of the sacked Bill O'Brien - the squad is still not strong enough. In addition, the many charges of sexual harassment against the willing quarterback Deshaun Watson are hanging over the team. (SERVICE: Results and schedule of the NFL)

31. Detroit Lions

The Lions rebuild is in full swing. Jared Goff is the successor to Matthew Stafford in the QB position. Swapping the offensive weapons Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones for Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams is a worsening. Thanks to various future draft picks and a smart GM, at least a bright future beckons.

30. Jacksonville Jaguars

With Urban Meyer, the team has secured one of the most successful college trainers in history. In addition, Trevor Lawrence is waiting with the first pick in the draft quarterback. Meyer can advance this and other talents. Despite the commitments of Carlos Hyde and Marvin Jones, there is a lack of offensive power - despite a lot of salary scope. The hiring of an assistant trainer known for racist insults was immediately rectified by his resignation.

29. New York Jets

With the second pick in the draft, everything indicates that the Jets catch quarterback Zach Wilson and knock Sam Darnold down. Some good players were signed in the Free Agency, including receiver Corey Davis. The best news for fans and teams, however, is that unsuccessful coach Adam Gase is history and with Robert Saleh a fresh and happy wind is coming to the Big Apple.

28. Cincinnati Bengals

With Riley Reiff, the team quarterback Joe Burrow has finally provided an offensive tackle that can also protect him. In addition, the franchise has hired a new coach for the offensive line, Frank Pollack, who can restore the players' trust. This alone should significantly improve the protection for the playmaker. But miracles are not to be expected.

27. Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz is gone, now Jalen Hurts is the clear number one when it comes to starting quarterback. Because Jalen Mills has switched to the Patriots, the Eagles have to strengthen their secondary. The decision to trade down from position six to position twelve in the draft is curious. But because they have little money available, the drafts have to come up with outstanding picks.

26. Denver Broncos

Linebacker Von Miller was held, Safety Justin Simmons was given a record contract and cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller were brought in. So the defense is well prepared. But a strong secondary is enough if the offense is not first class. And is Drew Lock really the answer to all questions in the playmaker position?

25. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are also facing a weak season in 2021. Due to the upper salary limit, hardly anything was possible in the Free Agency - the team has many holes in the squad. Quarterback Matt Ryan is entering his 14th season, but could not really convince last season. If Atlanta got Kyle Pitts in the draft tight end, they could at least please Matty Ice.

24. New York Giants

With the Giants, they continue to rely on Daniel Jones as quarterback. Whether this is a happy decision remains to be seen. With Kenny Golladay they have finally given their playmaker a top receiver - who probably earns too much and occasionally raises questions. If Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram stay healthy, this could be a really powerful offense - in theory.

23. Chicago Bears

The Bears have been grappling with a mediocre quarterback for years. Now fans dreamed of Russell Wilson, who had chosen Chicago as one of his four favorite destinations. However, the team got Andy Dalton. At least through the franchise day for Allen Robinson there is hope - one of the best offensive players in the league will stay for at least a year.

22. Carolina Panthers

With the signing of defensive end Haason Reddick, who can play in various formations as Edge Rusher, the team has made a good move. Mainly because the pressure on the opposing quarterback was a major shortcoming last season. But who will be the playmaker in 2021? The poker over Deshaun Watson didn't pay off - is Teddy Bridgewater really going on?

21. Las Vegas Raiders

Last season there were only two defensive lines in the NFL that were worse than the Raiders. Linebacker Yannick Ngakoue provides a remedy in this regard - but that doesn't help if the offense takes a step back with the departures of receiver Nelson Agholor, center Rodney Hudson and tackle Trent Brown. The expensive engagement of running back Kenyan Drake - as a backup for young star Josh Jacobs - is difficult to understand.

20. Dallas Cowboys

The hanging game around Dak Prescott was finally over, the quarterback tied to the team with a long-term contract. But there is enough room for improvement, especially the fifth worst defense from last season. The signing of Safety Keanu Neal is a good step, now the newly installed defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has to ensure that key players like DeMarcus Lawrence, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch find their way back into the flow.

19. Minnesota Vikings

With Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and rookie Justin Jefferson, quarterback Kirk Cousin has enough weapons at his disposal. But for the team to cause a sensation, the defense has to get the hang of it. Linebacker Anthony Barr's contract was restructured and good free agents were hired. This does not answer whether the Pass Rush will really improve profitably.

18. Los Angeles Chargers

Playmaker Justin Herbert set an NFL rookie record with 31 touchdown passes last season. The team didn't play badly, but often gave up games in the last few minutes. With the new head coach Brandon Staley, they now have to find out how to really win games. To protect Herbert, All-Pro-Center Corey Linsley was brought in by the Packers.

17. Washington Football Team

For years there was a lack of cooperation between the coaching staff and the front office in the capital. Now new managers are in power. The receiver duo Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel is very promising, as is the defensive monster Chase Young. Then there was the best cornerback on the market: William Jackson III. Now quarterback legend Ryan Fitzpatrick has been signed after comeback player Alex Smith was sacked. But this is not a long-term solution.

16. New England Patriots

Bill Belichick's answer to Tom Brady winning a Super Bowl without him? A shopping tour that is second to none. In the previous three seasons, the team spent a total of just 51 million, this year alone it was more than 137.5 million dollars in 24 hours for guaranteed contract amounts - franchise record and second in NFL history during a free agency -Period. One question, however, remains open: with Cam Newton as quarterback, are the Pats strong enough for the playoffs or do they need a new playmaker?

15. New Orleans Saints

The end of Drew Brees' career was a severe blow to the Saints. Whoever replaces the quarterback, one thing is clear: it won't be Drew Brees. They also lost a handful of other starters because they were about $ 100 million above the salary cap. New Orleans is short of cash, so Saints coach Sean Payton has his hands full to keep his team in the NFC elite. But: With Jameis Winston and Marcus Williams they were able to keep two high-caliber athletes. The roster is still strong enough to fight for the fifth NFC South title in a row.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers

Especially on the offensive, the Steelers' engine often stuttered. Pittsburgh finished the season last at the rushing yards and also at the passing yards they found themselves in the lower half of the league. Nevertheless, the Steelers have behaved rather cautiously in the market so far and trust that Ben Roethlisberger will stay fit. After all, JuJu Smith-Schuster was kept very cheap.

13. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins continue to rely on their current hope, Tua Tagovailoa. They made that clear again when they let veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick go. With Will Fuller, they finally have a receiver that brings the urgently needed explosiveness. Although he missed the first game of the season due to a doping ban - and due to that offense and injury problems, he was only able to play more than eleven games in his rookie season - but his potential is enormous. Should Fuller finally find more constant health under the Miami sun, then he would be an excellent point of reference for Tua.

12. San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers achieved what they set out to do in the Free Agency by providing Trent Williams with a new record deal. The Left Tackle receives a six-year contract valued at $ 138 million, making it the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history. With this, the Niners not only secure one of the best tackles in the league, but also flexibility in the draft and possibly can put a QB competitor at Jimmy Garoppolo's side. Another plus point: After an injury-ridden year 2020, many starters are coming back. If all goes well, San Francisco should be a legitimate NFC contender.

11. Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals have their checkbooks for J.J. Watt, A.J. Green, Matt Prater and Malcolm Butler unpacked - all veterans who have a lot of experience, but have already reached a certain age. There were a total of ten veterans who signed the Cardinals in the current offseason. However, the 36-year-old Prater is one of the best kickers in NFL history and could ultimately make the difference whether Arizona reaches the playoffs or misses it for the sixth time in a row.

10. Indianapolis Colts

With the signing of Carson Wentz, the Colts have taken a huge risk. After a mega start and a Super Bowl win (he was injured), the quarterback career went down the drain. Wentz conceded an unbelievable 50 sacks at the Eagles in 2020 - even though he was only on the field for twelve games. In Indianapolis everything should now be different. With only 21 approved sacks, the Colts were the second-best row in the league last season. And on a personal level, too, the Colts are a hit. Before Frank Reich was hired there as head coach in 2018, he worked for the Eagles as an offensive coordinator. So he coached Wentz in his MVP-worthy season. If the trade works, Indianapolis will have its franchise quarterback for the next several years, as Wentz is only 28 years old.

9. Cleveland Browns

With the signing of John Johnson, the Browns have made one of the smartest offseason decisions. The safety was largely overshadowed by Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey in the defense of the Los Angeles Rams, but was a strong performer. Last season, the versatile safety achieved 105 tackles, eight blocked passes and one interception. Johnson is only 25 years old and can help the regained Browns in the long term.

8. Tennessee Titans

After the departure of Jonnu Smith and Corey Davis, the prognoses for the Titans were not particularly good. The team needed a jolt in pass rushing, and that is exactly what Bud Dupree and Denico Autry are supposed to do. The two players combined had 15.5 sacks in 2020. They are tough, physically tough football players who will set the tone in Tennessee from the start. The Titans are ready for the playoffs.

7. Seattle Seahawks

It can be assumed that Russell Wilson will be the starting quarterback in Seattle. The Seahawks have given him another weapon in tight end Gerald Everett and extended it with Tyler Lockett, but Russ still doesn't seem happy with his situation. Quarterback receiver Antonio Brown, whom he wanted to attract to his team in 2020, would like to strengthen his team. The Seahawks will be desperate to find a way to forgive Wilson that he will stay in Seattle.

6. Los Angeles Rams

Jared Goff's swap for Matthew Stafford was a historic blockbuster trade. Stafford is supposed to revive the Rams, offer the prospect of an NFC West title and lead the team to the Super Bowl. One must remember, however, that Stafford is 33 years old and was beaten for 12 years in Detroit. Protecting the quarterback will be paramount in L.A. When fit, Stafford is one of the league's most underrated playmakers and a significant upgrade to Goff.

5. Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens have strengthened themselves with Kevin Zeitler. He fits perfectly into Baltimore's strong offensive line and is a bargain (three years, $ 22.5 million) compared to fellow free agent Joe Thuney (five years, $ 80 million). With Sammy Watkins from Kansas City, Lamar Jackson received another offensive weapon he needed.

4. Buffalo Bills

The Bills have had a strong offseason behind them with the signing of Matt Milano, Emmanuel Sanders and Mitchell Trubisky as backup for Josh Allen. So there is no reason why Buffalo shouldn't be in the AFC Championship Game in January 2022.

3. Green Bay Packers

The Packers' best move in the offseason - along with the new deal for Aaron Jones - could have been the signing of a new defensive coordinator in Joe Barry. If Green Bay can stabilize the Packers defense and Aaron Rodgers is playing at the level of the previous season, an NFC Championship Game for the team with the German receiver Equanimeous St. Brown is possible.

2. Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City is all about the offensive line. The Chiefs couldn't avoid saying goodbye to Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher. With both Offensive Tackles out of operations, there were too many imponderables for the team to count on in 2021 or beyond. With the move, the Chiefs freed up $ 18 million in Cap-Space. This will help them improve their crumbling offensive line. It would have looked even better if the Chiefs had pulled Trent Williams onto the Free Agency. The Chiefs will likely be looking for a lineman in the NFL Draft. How well new players integrate will determine whether Patrick Mahomes can lead the team to a second championship.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs are the first team in the salary cap era (since 1994) to keep all 22 starters from a Super Bowl winner. With Tom Brady they also have the quarterback GOAT, who was thinking about winning his eighth title when the other Bucs stars celebrated their latest triumph. It was Brady who, with his contract extension, made it possible for Tampa Bay to keep its team of champions together. With the restructuring of his contract, he shoveled a total of 19 million US dollars free for Cap Space and thus laid the basis for his franchise to bind additional service providers or to sign them again. The hunt for the next Super Bowl title can begin.
